Marine Mills Folk School and our board of directors are grateful to all who donate their time and talents to our folk school. Whether you're a host on class day or help with behind-the-scenes tasks, we want to show our appreciation.

In March 2023, our staff and board developed the following Volunteer Incentive Program. Thank you, volunteers, for helping Marine Mills Folk School grow and thrive!
